Neko Case surrounded by comedy admirers at '13 Mirman fest (more by David Andrako)
Eugene

What do Ira Glass, Michael Ian Black, Mike Birbiglia, and Neko Case have in common? They all made an appearance at last year's spectacular Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival, Brooklyn's most well-curated, arbitrarily created comedy festival.

Well, the festival is back for its seventh year from September 18 - 22 at The Bell House and Union Hall, this year with an extra night of festivities added onto the standard four-day lineup. As usual, its an eclectic mix of comedians, entertainers, musicians, and scientists, including H Jon Benjamin, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Bill Nye, Michael Che, Dave Hill, Elna Baker, Nick Thune, Jon Glaser, Bridget Everett, Michelle Wolf, Jessi Klein, Wyatt Cenac, Robyn Hitchcock and Derrick Brown among those announced so far. There's also two nights of Startalk Live! this year, one hosted by Bill Nye and one with Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Like every EMCF, the best shows are always rife with special guests and secret additions. 2014 schedule, as it stands, is below and tickets go on sale Friday (8/8) at 1 PM. You can also buy, for the first time, a ($500) Eug Express Lane VIP Pass that gets you into all the shows and allows you to skip the line.

2014 Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival lineup is listed below...

Can't wait for the "Neko Case smells" jerk-off to comment.

Neko case smells jerk-off? That sounds unpleasant. I can't read quotation marks.

Seriously, someone needs to buy that woman some deodorant and a hair brush.

What stinks is all this back-slapping indie rock / alt comedy circle jerk horseshit. Yo La Tengo, Aimee Mann and Ted Leo do this kind of shit all the time. It's tiresome and it is never funny.

How many months pregnant is Mirman?

2:04: You have to replace the "to" with "scarf".

You have to listen and listen good. You may think I'm a jerk off. Whatever. I'm telling you, for real, that Neko Case smells really, really bad. OMG. PU. Get close and take a whiff. Oh lordy. This is not some stupid meme. This is a medical issue that needs to be taken seriously. Oh it stinks so so bad.

kinda the worst line-up ever for this thing

Plenty of people in brooklyn smell bad. So what? can you smell her from where youre sitting? probably not. shes an absolute megababe, talented, and she probably doesn't spend her time trolling the internet messageboards like us losers.

@131 been more or less the same lineup every year; you know who will show up. granted there's no archer/bob's burgers event, but that's blatantly what the benjamin thing is.
